Internet abuse …


You may be aware that I work part-time in a local café. One of the many features of this café, is their free Wi-Fi. The access code is displayed for anyone to use if you know where to look. Most customers will use the Wi-Fi for what it is there for i.e. so they can … Continue reading Internet abuse …

Ridiculous pricing, From Then to Now and other things …


Unfortunately, my From Now to Then series has had to be put on hold for a while. The friend I ask to ‘proof read’ the posts is not going to be available for the next few weeks. He is in the process of changing jobs which has resulted in him emigrating to Canada. So for … Continue reading Ridiculous pricing, From Then to Now and other things …

It’s always difficult…


It was never going to be easy. People have different ideas of what a family holiday is all about. With 10 different people, although the same family there will always be some mild conflict with what people want to do each day. This one has been exasperated with problems surrounding the accommodation. First there was … Continue reading It’s always difficult…

Caught … after all I have said!


The number of times I have warned people about the dangers of Internet shopping, I go and get caught myself. I’m forever saying that ‘…if it looks to good to be true, then it is…’ I can’t remember how many times  I have told family and friends that the cheapest is not the best option … Continue reading Caught … after all I have said!

Many are not worth the effort …


I partake in a number of internet surveys. I do it for gain, not for “A chance to influence …”No, sheer monetary gain or for points/credits that I can convert into money or goods that I want/like. I subscribe to around four or five survey sites, but the most profitable ones are YouGov and Maximiles. … Continue reading Many are not worth the effort …

A little bit techy …


For a few months now, I have had a problem with my calendar. My primary email account is a Gmail account, and the application that use to read and write my email is Outlook 2016. Here was the problem! Outlook has its own calendar, but I can only see that calendar on my laptop as … Continue reading A little bit techy …

Small and strange …


Let me get something out of the way. The title of this post is not a case of self deprecation. No, I’m talking about the world and how is connected by the internet. A bit of background here. I was doing a search on eBay, for something I wanted to buy. I was not having … Continue reading Small and strange …

Testing ‘Blog by Email’ option


I seem to recall giving this a try some time ago. I must have had some issues with it (or maybe it had issues with me!) because I think I would have posted more this way. There has been the occasion when I have not had access to the internet. An email post via my … Continue reading Testing ‘Blog by Email’ option

Watch out for this one ….


I'm pretty keen, when it comes to my online security and tend to delete any emails that offer any type of security/antivirus service, often without even reading them. On this occasion though, I thought I would share it with you, as a number of people I know have received this email and at least one … Continue reading Watch out for this one ….

Are we “Rip Off Britain” ??


     For sometime now, I have wanted a propelling pencil. I wanted one of the so called ‘old fashioned’ type, that you have to twist to move the lead out. I have a number of the more modern ‘clutch’ type, the ones that you click to move the lead. Whilst these have their uses, I … Continue reading Are we “Rip Off Britain” ??

Will it do any good ??????


So Wikipedia is having a 'blackout' in protest at the SOPA/PIPA. Will it make any difference ? Well I don't really think so. Not here in Britain anyway. Two people have mentioned it in the office this morning. One thinks it is about 'getting rid of internet porn' and the other person thought it was because … Continue reading Will it do any good ??????

Still here !!!!!


(Wednesday 30/06/10)    It’s been a long time since my last post (or so it seems). Quite a few late nights over the past few days. The play is coming along nicely, but after the rehearsal, S**** like to nip along to the local for a pint or three. Of course, like a good father, … Continue reading Still here !!!!!

Saturday 10/10/09


   It was a long evening yesterday. With the youngest being away for the week, he was keen to get back onto the internet. So much so,that it was gone 11:30pm, when he finally went back to his room. At last we thought (well I thought, Mrs H was already in bed), at last, he … Continue reading Saturday 10/10/09
